About Navicor

Integrated marketing communications agency with oncology at our core

Oncology-Focused

Navicor is a team of oncology experts, distinguished clinicians, and award-winning creative professionals dedicated to improving patients’ lives by successfully launching and maintaining oncology brands.

Launch Experience

We have unmatched experience in transforming your developments into commercial realities. With over 12 launches in nine years, we understand how to prep an orphan-disease market, negotiate OPDP reviews, and navigate accelerated filings.

Creative Flair

While oncology is highly scientific, that doesn’t mean your brand communications should be clinical white papers. We use some of the best creative strategies to ensure your brand’s message is received. And our industry recognizes our efforts—honoring us with trophies from some of the most prestigious award shows.

Full-Service

We know how important it is to you that your agency doesn’t outsource all or part of its services. When we say full-service, we mean it. Our in-house production—from traditional sales tools to interactive sales aids, websites, and videos—keeps cost low and quality high.

The Oncology Agency

At Navicor, oncology is more than a therapeutic category–it’s personal. Our team of oncology marketing experts is driven to help clinicians and patients better understand the motivating benefits of our clients’ life-saving therapies.

“Always learn and study the science. The more we know, the more sound our recommendations.”

DQ is all about meeting the intellectual challenge of oncology marketing: “The ideal account strategist has a deep understanding of and appreciation for the sciences and a flexible communication style that connects with people and builds partnerships.” As President, he oversees the day-to-day business of Navicor, providing leadership, maintaining strong client relationships, and managing profitability/growth strategies. “What we do is important not just from the standpoint of making scientific progress in the area of oncology,” Dave says. “We’re also educating physicians so that they thoroughly understand the product benefits and ensure patients get the most appropriate therapy.” Dave’s 20+ years in pharma include sales, marketing, and leadership positions with Abbott Laboratories, Roxane Laboratories, Shire, and GSW Worldwide. On the flip side, this great medical mind loves to drive trucks and forklifts, and he maintains he can build a progressive draw die. (We Googled it. It looks complicated.)

“Avoid doing good work: good is the enemy of great.”

For the last 20 years, Marvin has led teams that built some of the largest brands in oncology by producing attention-getting campaigns, telling compelling MOA stories, leveraging novel technologies, and driving traffic at major congresses. “It’s important to me that marketing oncology products is done right,” says Marvin. “Not everyone who works within healthcare marketing can or should work on oncology-product promotion.” Marvin currently leads the Philadelphia office as Executive Creative Director and Managing Director. This Philadelphia native, who has been with Navicor since its beginning, is cultivating an east-coast agency with a midwestern heart: “Witnessing Navicor mature into what it has become is hard to put into words,” he says. “Knowing we are uniquely qualified to build a brand that will get used appropriately and ultimately change outcomes for patients is a great feeling.”

>20 years (agency + client side) × oncology pharmaceuticals = master of brand strategy.

As Senior Vice President of Strategic Services, Damon refines the programs and tools that help our clients develop winning brand strategy. With 20+ years of oncology pharmaceutical leadership, launch, and sales management experience split between Navicor and Bristol-Myers Squibb, Damon understands and facilitates the strategy development process from both client and agency perspectives.

“The great Vince Lombardi once shared an insight that has guided me throughout my career,” Damon says. “‘Perfection is not attainable. But if we chase perfection, we can catch excellence.’ I truly feel that way about the excellent work we do here at Navicor.”

“Don’t design the page; design the reaction to the page. Everything else will fall right into place.”

Rich drives the creative engine at Navicor, having built pharmaceutical brands and campaigns for more than 25 years as founder of Persuasive Communications, Inc., and Senior Vice President and Creative Director for The Hal Lewis Group in Philadelphia. “I grew up drawing on the walls of my bedroom,” he says. “Since then I’ve found creative possibilities in just about every aspect of my life.” Today Rich’s creative work has evolved into building acoustic guitars, exploring the beauty of coral reefs, and creating meaningful brands and educational content that empower clinicians in the battle against cancer. Lucky for him, Navicor encourages drawing all over the (whiteboard-covered) walls.
